comment Integrals involving the Tricomi hypergeometric function
Perhaps something like O. Marichev, M. Trott, and S. Wolfram, formula functions.wolfram.com/07.33.21.0003.01 . It depends on the quoting style of the venue you are publishing in.

comment The origin of the satisfy-verify mixup
@GeorgesElencwajg : I really dislike his way of writing and talking about mathematics, the architecture of most of his books, his choice of emphasis, even if he is one very important mathematician of the 20th century with deep contributions to many fields, great and even devastating insight, etc. In the particular case we are discussing I do not think he originated this way of using "verifier" but I hold it to a higher standard than most and I regret that he employs it.

comment The origin of the satisfy-verify mixup
This is just a proof that Serre has terrible style inherited from at least one of his teachers and that he is not alone among the Bourbaki team whose influence on mathematical writing tradition in France and elsewhere is significant. This is clearly a minor "abus de langage" and its frequency and diffusion does not reduce the absurdity of using an active verb implying consciousness with a mathematical object as a subject.
